First flowers in the garden and new socks ....

Luna is smelling and searching between the old and dry leaves and I found the first flowers of the year there. Schneeglöckchen in german and I think snowdrops in english.

I showed some discipline this time and avoided the 2nd sock syndrom as good as I could. So after one week and only one and a half shawl/scarf inbetween I´ve finished Davids socks. We call them Wellensocken (wave socks) because of the waves and the waterish colour. te. hey were easy and fast to knit. The pattern is written for 3mm needles and heavier yarn to get socks in women size. David has european size 35/36 so I´ve used 2.5mm DPN and fingering weight yarn and they turned out the right size.
Pattern: Kalajoki by Tiina Seppälä
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in Adonis Blue (gift from Ann)
Needles: 2.5mm DPN


  1. Beautiful sock-pattern and great color of yarn!!!

  2. Tolle Socken :-) Machen irgendwie lust auf Sommer.


  3. I love those wave socks... and great work getting the second one done! It's the hardest :D
